Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe discussed the outcome of the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un at a plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok on Wednesday. “The countries located in North-East Asia stick to that opinion that we approve that summit between leaders of the United States... Еще and the DPRK,” the Chinese president said. Abe in his part applauded Trump’s efforts to create dialogue between Pyongyang and Washington. “He[Trump] adopted a new approach that no one else had tried before. Through President Trump's decisive judgement relations between North Korea and the international community are starting to move forward,” said the Japanese leader. During his speech, President Xi also told a story of an earthquake-affected Sichuan boy who had a wish to study in Russia. The boy had left a message in a bottle and thrown it in the sea, only to be found several months later by an employee from the All-Russian children center 'Ocean' in Vladivostok. “This boy's wish came true. Now he's studying at the Far Eastern Federal University. This story is a prime example of friendly exchange among people of the regions,” Xi said, inciting applause from the audience. The Eastern Economic Forum, which has been held on an annual basis since 2015, works as a forum to develop political, economic and cultural ties between Russia and the Asia Pacific. The forum is held from 11 to 13 of September in Vladivostok.
